    Interesting...dont think much of the comments of porting VF4 to the Gamecube as nonsense tho!

    "Also, on the subject of Sega titles being ported to the GameCube, Kayama said, "We'd like to fine-tune the GameCube version of Eternal Arcadia so that kids can also play. I think kids should have fun controlling the airship and shooting cannons. I think it is nonsense to directly port Virtua Fighter to the GameCube. For example, we can make it Virtua Fighter Kids to curtail to the lower age demographic. The game system and fun factor should not be changed so that these players can then move on to the next step with the actual Virtua Fighter."

    Kayama also stressed Sega's plans to take different approaches for network games and stand-alone games for different consoles. For network games, the company will maintain its "open device" stance and will not focus on just one console. As for stand-alone games, the company doesn't intend to port the same title to multiple consoles. Each console will receive its own software lineup in accordance with its trends and age demographic."

    This kind of bugs me...

    I was really hoping that VF4 would eventually show up on the gamecube... I so want to play this that I may even have to pick up a ps2...

    It seems to me that the gamecube button layout would be really good for the vf series... though the d-pad's a bit small.

    That is my problem with the Gamecube, is that it's viewed more as a "kids system". I know that it's getting games like Resident Evil, but still, it is precieved as still being for the kids, while the X-Box and PS2 are for the older crowd.
    Don't think this is a Gamecube Bashing statement. I have the X-Box, PS2, Dreamcast and Gamecube, and I love them all. I just don't think Nintendo has done enough to say, "Were are not the same company that turned Mortal Kombat's blood white. We are for adults now too!"

    Nintendo could start making hardcore porno games on the GCN and it would still be seen as a kids console.

    MS could end up losing their entire business and go bankrupt and people would still see them as monopolizers.

    Eternal Arcadia was the name of Skies of Arcadia 1 in Japan. He's talking about a Gamecube port of the first game. No sequel has been announced.
